Offering a lovely pink coloured and gold gilded fine bone china tea cup by Aynsley of England. Featuring H.R.H. Princess Margaret set in a wonderful cameo picture on the interior of this commemorative set for her visit to Canada in 1958.
I seldom actually drink tea but I like pretty, vintage and delicate tea cups and saucers. Best of all, I like when they are not a set, all perfect and all matching each other. A mismatched set has more charm and variety and seems less tight laced and formal.
Whether you drink a lot of tea or just a little, a pretty cup and saucer is a treat and just nice for Valentine’s Day for someone who doesn’t want chocolates, candy, flowers or much of the traditional Valentine romance. Instead, think of a teacup (don’t forget the matching saucer because the actual cup and saucer should match or you just look like you are very bad at washing your dishes).
This blushing vintage pretty comes from Etsy. It’s a bit expensive but it really suits Valentine’s Day.
It’s a simple project and only involves a couple of steps: pop off the backs of your jeweled earrings/broaches with wire cutters, then attach a magnet with super glue. Presto! You’ve got yourself a blinged out fridge magnet. Mega impact for the absolute minimum amount of effort. Or, in other words, my kind of DIY project.

I love finding ideas for upcycling broken brooches into something else you can use everyday, like this.
I found a shop on Etsy which sells these exceptional chairs. Rescued Retro Vintage
Found on Rose Wholesale. Love this dress!
These came from The Vintage Optical Shop, in the US.
I’m tempted to buy this, on sale even. But, to be practical… it’s been ages since I last wore any jewellery. Though my favourites are always gorgeous brooches with rhinestones.
If you have holiday or sparkly vintage brooches you could hang them from the ribbons instead of using Christmas ornaments.

Every once in awhile I find something in furniture that I love. This is one of them. I also found a chandelier made with vintage lamp shades and old furniture scraped down to the bare bones of just the wooden frame and trim. I wasn’t so keen on the bare bones sofa and chairs but the idea has potential.
I can’t spend $40 plus shipping on the original mug on Etsy, but I can save the image of it and give the link for someone else to take a look.
